    Hey all

    I have a Dell Vostro 1500

    Specs are:

    Operating System: Vista Ultimate
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo CPU T7300 @ 2.00ghz
    Graphics Card: Nvidia Geforce 8600M GT
    2Gb of ram

    And i want to know if it is at all possible to upgrade it? I would like to, one day, upgrade the Processor and Ram and maybe the graphics card.

    Hmm i see so would i be better off with a custom made PC next time round rather than a laptop? We have a custom made PC which we recently upgraded the hard drive, PSU and graphics card on and that was fairly simple. My father is the brains behind that though!

    What would you say is the best casing to buy? Our current one is an X-Infinity but my father wants to build one for himself because he has the old Packard Bell.

    Antec 300 for basic functionality and good cooling for mid-high-range CPUs and graphics cards. After and before that, there's millions of choices, all depends on your taste... If you like artisticly shaped windows and 1-7-colored LEDs, there's that kind of cases. If you like plain, glossy black/silver finish with only fans at the front and rear, you have that kind of cases to choose from. And everything from between.
